Designing summer youth program evaluations that work! 

11-21-2016 11:46

Summertime...and the evaluating is easy! In this session, participants will build skills to design evaluations in a summer learning program or camp setting. Using a camp evaluation planning template, participants will design a plan to either support evaluation capacity in a summer program with which they work or directly conduct an evaluation in a summer program. Topics will include choosing evaluation questions and methods, training and working with staff and counselors, collecting data with youth aged 6 to 16, and reporting tips. We will share some validated and accessible tools to measure youth development outcomes such as problem solving confidence, teamwork, and perceived competence. These tools include self-reports and the perspectives of parents/caregivers and camp staff. We will also share tools to assess camp program quality. Session participants will walk away with new ideas and tips for evaluation in a summer camp or summer learning setting.
